You problem is that you have the EA Download version of BF2.  You need to get the BF2.exe off the DVD.  Search these forums for it.

You could also try searching the forums for problems related to the Direct Download version of BF2.  There are a couple different fixes, one of which is downloading the DVD version of the .exe, the other deals with adding certain folders into your BF2 directory.

It seems like the FH2.25 release will be a 2.2-2.25 patch, so you probably need to get 2.2 working correctly before Friday, when all the servers will be switching to 2.25.

(This is a particularly big patch! So you may want to bring along a book to read, perhaps The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy? You'll need something to entertain you and if you get hungry you can always go to the Restraunt at the End of the Universe or listen to a concert by Jetblack Deviato but I digress.

What operating system does FH2 server run best on? Our clan is setting up a server and we need to know what the server runs best on.

I'm sorry I don't know that but I advise PM'ing the Mod-Leader Lobo and asking him! I don't think OS will matter but I would check to be sure

XP is the best, seeing that BF2 was originally made for that, but Win 7 and Vista will work though

The link you supply to download BF2 patch 1.5.  Where does that come from?  The latest official EA BF2 patch appears to be 1.41, found http://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/patches/BF2/.

Not that I'm a suspicious SOB, but...well, yes.  I'm a suspicious SOB.   >:(

You are not a suspicious SOB, more a lazy SOB.

Hey, Dick (I assume I can call you by your first name, Dick).  If I go to the official EA BF2 site, and the latest update they list is 1.41, that would lead one to believe that the latest update is 1.41.  Instead of being a dick, Dick, perhaps you could have just said "Yeah, they haven't updated their web page.  Silly of them wasn't it?"

Instead, you had to be a dick.  Is that what I can expect around here?

FOAD.   >:(
